Pliny Fisk III is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems. With a background in architecture, landscape architecture, and the systems sciences, Pliny has made pivotal contributions to the sustainability movement for more than four decades. His prototypes challenge conventional wisdom about building design, engineering, materials, economic development, and landscape and regional planning.
For more than 30 years Gail Vittori, Co-Director of the Center, has been a catalyst for local, state, and national initiatives advancing green building protocols, policies, and prototypes. In 2001, she convened the Green Guide for Health Care, catalyzing a revolution in healthcare design, construction, and operations. She is the 2013 Chair of the Green Building Certification Institute Board of Directors and serves on the Health Production Declaration Collaborative Board.
The Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems, established in 1975, is a non-profit education, research, and demonstration organization specializing in life cycle planning and design. They undertake projects based on their potential contribution to site, regional, and global sustainability, and human health, and actively pursue collaborations with associate organizations, businesses, and professional firms.
